"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.” Nelson Mandela. - 27/09/2015

The Camp Hope resounded with the sound of cheer and happiness as choruses from famous Nepali songs echoed through the neighbourhood-bringing a smile to the onlookers as they celebrated a day dedicated to childhood; The Children’s Day. 

Days of gruelling practising was worth every bit - the evening  turned out to be full of  unlimited fun and entertainment as girls grooved in  perfect timing to the  beat of the current Bollywood favourite, “Chittiya Kalaiya Re,” and toddlers sang Nepali favourites as the audience cheered along. 

Games, songs, dances and just good cheer !
